"Marbé has a unique ability to imagine a space, design, and execute beautiful artistic elements we thought were impossible in our home."
Raised in a multifaceted family full of style, Marbé Briceno was gifted with a keen, talented, and educated eye for art and design. Her mother, an impressionist artist, and her father, a builder and political activist, she's been surrounded by creativity and passion from a young age.
Crafted and Curated
An immersive approach to travel and exploration infuses Marbé's designs and the way she creates. Working with clients who seek her refined and cultured approach to design, she seamlessly combines function with the curated elements that make a home your own. This means bold, eclectic, and unique touches you won't find anywhere else. And when we can't find the perfect piece, bespoke design ensures every detail is just right.
Your home must reflect the experiences you've had, the life you've built, and the way you live.
For many, creating the home of their dreams feels impossibly hard. A lack of vision. Not understanding what it means to create passionately. Marbé guides you through the process, removing the stress of what might be, to craft and curate an edgy and unexpected, yet intentional home.
At the heart of her artistic process and decisive design is an innate talent, impeccable sense of fashion, modern elegance, proven skills, and many years of real-world experience.
After completing studies in Miami and graduating Cum Laude with a degree in Architecture in Interiors, she received a scholarship to study abroad. She earned her master's degree from the University of Salamanca, Spain, also taking extended classes in France, Italy, and Portugal to explore more and gain knowledge about furniture, design, and art.
An immersive approach to education and exploration informs Marbé's designs and her process, allowing her to seamlessly combine the exotic and refined to create the unexpected.
An award-winning designer, Marbé is a loyal member of the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) and 2022-23 president-elect of the Pasadena Chapter. In addition, she belongs to the International Interior Design Association (IIDA), Institute of Classic Architecture & Arts (ICAA) and is a member of The Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (NKBA|KBIS).
When she's not designing, she spends time with her husband, Alejandro, and sons. Marbé's oldest, JF, still lives in Miami. They have a close relationship and a shared love for her adopted hometown. She also enjoys taking her youngest, Ben, to soccer and hearing about Leo's cinematography classes. Favorite activities include hiking, time at the beach, and visiting the myriad of LA museums.
"Marbé exceeded my expectations in every way."
My experience with Marbé was great on every level. After having used three other designers, I was skeptical. Marbé was able to exceed my expectations [which were quite high] in every area. She transformed my home into something to be proud of. She excelled in communication, design vision, and execution.
Marbé takes the time to understand your vision, source within your parameters, and communicate flawlessly. Her taste and professionalism resulted in a great final product. I couldn't be happier!
